It wasn't until just recently I discovered that I had been a victim of a scam. I always thought this would never happen to me. I received a telephone call several weeks ago stating that they wanted to save me money on my gas and send me a $100.00 worth of cupons. I never gave them any kind of banking information.. They never sent me coupons.
A few weeks later I received somthing in the mail from Premium Mega Saver. I had no idea what this was, but it said I made a verbal agreement to the program. I did no such thing. I never agreed to anything, not even the coupon cards. A short time after that I had a 54.90 (6-19-02) dollar charge on my checking account. I didn't know for sure what was going on, so I started calling the 800's and 888's numbers listed, only to find it was an endless cycle.
I finnaly got through a young man and he told me to call back a whole week later (6-28). I went to check my account information today (6-27) and I found another charge for $99.00 from a company called Hartford Auto Club, YET ANOTHER UNAUTHORIZED CHARGE!!! At this point im outraged, again I start to call the 800's and 888 numbers given, only to find another endless loop. I decide not to bother trying to get to the bottom of this myself. I did some research on the web and came accross this scam site, then I knew there was proof of this ordeal.
I soon called my bank after reading that I could actually do somthing about this mess. My bank filed stop payments on those ammount and suggested that I close the account. I will be closing the account tomorrow. They are currently working to refund my money if they cannot get it back from these butheads that took it. I wanted to add yet another article for other victims to see. SOMTHING NEEDS DONE ABOUT THESE THINGS!!!....
